Very mind boggling photo I shot on a recent trip to Houston that i forgot about. Remember being a kid and going to the park? Before computers, fancy cell phones, and high tech video games? you know? you’d meet up with friends or you’d just go and end up having a blast with some random kid, who’s mom was on a jog around the pond potentially becoming one of your best friends. That seems very rare nowadays. Kids are really missing out. Think about it.
Houston trip was super fun, i didn’t get a lot of content on the trip but it was still one of the best yet.
I actually fell asleep numerous times on the trip. From sleeping at the spot, or in the car, and even at Select Skateshop. It was a little nuts and embarrassing due to the fact that I woke up to my friends snapping photos of me passed out. It was my first time ever setting foot in there.
Skating around Houston with a 70 pound bag and getting kicked out of almost every spot we went to in the first 5 min we got there didn’t seem too appealing. So i decided to just leave my bag in the car. I Probably should have just threw the 50mm on and cruised, but i decided to just use my phone to document minus a few shots above and the one below. Probably a good thing the first day since we got stuck in a random storm we thought was going to pass leaving us stranded a mile or so away from our cars. Whats pretty fucked is that we were all chilling in a parking garage trying to stay dry but got kicked out for just being there when it was clearly pouring.
Getting to just cruise through a city i have never really stepped into and admire so much in many different ways with all the homies is a really great feeling. no worries or cares. just skateboarding.
